In the name of Allah Most Gracious Most Merciful.
AL-Quran is the Book of Wisdom, a Guide and a Blessing for the Righteous
1 Alif Lam Mim. 3579
2 These are Verses of the Wise Book, 3580
3 A Guide and a Mercy to the Doers of Good, 3581
4 Those who establish regular Prayer and give regular Charity and have (in their hearts) the assurance of the Hereafter. 3582
5 These are on (true) guidance from their Lord; and these are the ones who will prosper. 3583
6 But there are among men those who purchase idle tales without knowledge (or meaning) to mislead (men) from the Path of Allah and throw ridicule (on the Path): for such there will be a humiliating Penalty. 3584
7 When Our Signs are rehearsed to such a one he turns away in arrogance as if he heard them not as if there were deafness in both his ears: announce to him a grievous Penalty. 3585
8 For those who believe and work righteous deeds there will be Gardens of Bliss.
9 To dwell therein. The promise of Allah is true: and He is Exalted in power Wise. 3586
10 He created the heavens without any pillars that ye can see; He set on the earth mountains standing firm lest it should shake with you; and He scattered through it beasts of all kinds. We send down rain from the sky and produce on the earth every kind of noble creature in pairs. 3587 3588 3589 3590 3591
11 Such is the Creation of Allah: now show Me what is there that others besides Him have created: nay but the Transgressors are in manifest error. 3592
Luqman advised his son not to commit Shirk
12 We bestowed (in the past) wisdom on Luqman: "Show (thy) gratitude to Allah." Any who is (so) grateful does so to the profit of his own soul: but if any is ungrateful verily Allah is free of all wants worthy of all praise. 3593 3594
13 Behold Luqman said to his son by way of instruction: "O my son! Join not in worship (others) with Allah: for false worship is indeed the highest wrong-doing." 3595
Rights of mother and the parents and Obey your parents but not in the matters of Shirk
14 And We have enjoined on man (to be good) to his parents: in travail upon travail did his mother bear him and in years twain was his weaning: (hear the command) "Show gratitude to Me and to thy parents: to Me is (thy final) Goal. 3596
15 "But if they strive to make the join in worship with Me things of which thou hast no knowledge obey them not; Yet bear them company in this life with justice (and consideration) and follow the way of those who turn to Me (in love): in the End the return of you all is to Me and I will tell you the truth (and meaning) of all that ye did." 3597 3598 3599
Advise of Luqman about moral behavior and interaction
16 "O my son!" (said Luqman) "If there be (but) the weight of a mustard-seed and it were (hidden) in a rock or (anywhere) in the heavens or on earth Allah will bring it forth: for Allah understands the finest mysteries (and) is well-acquainted (with them). 3600 3601 3602
17 "O my son! establish regular prayer enjoin what is just and forbid what is wrong: and bear with patient constancy whatever betide thee; for this is firmness (of purpose) in (the conduct of) affairs.
18 "And swell not thy cheek (for pride) at men nor walk in insolence through the earth; for Allah loveth not any arrogant boaster. 3603
19 "And be moderate in thy pace and lower thy voice; for the harshest of sounds without doubt is the braying of the ass." 3604
Main reason of misguidance is the blind following of ones forefathers
20 Do ye not see that Allah has subjected to your (use) all things in the heavens and on earth and has made His bounties flow to you in exceeding measure (both) seen and unseen? Yet there are among men those who dispute about Allah without knowledge and without guidance and without a Book to enlighten them! 3605 3606 3607
21 When they are told to follow the (revelation) that Allah has sent down they say: "Nay we shall follow the ways that we found our fathers (following)." What! even if it is Satan beckoning them to the Penalty of the (Blazing) Fire! 3608
22 Whoever submits his whole self to Allah and is a doer of good has grasped indeed the most trustworthy hand-hold: and with Allah rests the End and Decision of (all) affairs. 3609 3610
23 But if any reject Faith let not his rejection grieve thee: to Us is their return and We shall tell them the truth of their deeds: for Allah knows well all that is in (men's) hearts. 3611
24 We grant them their pleasure for a little while: in the end shall We drive them to a chastisement unrelenting. 3612
If all the trees were pens and the oceans and ink, Allah's words could not be put to writing and Allah is the only reality, all others to whom people invoke besides Him are false
25 If thou ask them who it is that created the heavens and the earth they will certainly say "Allah." Say: "Praise be to Allah!" But most of them understand not. 3613 3614
26 To Allah belong all things in heaven and earth: verily Allah is He (that is) free of all wants worthy of all praise. 3615
27 And if all the trees on earth were pens and the Ocean (were ink) with seven Oceans behind it to add to its (supply) yet would not the Words of Allah be exhausted (in the writing): for Allah is Exalted in power Full of Wisdom. 3616
28 And your creation or your resurrection is in no wise but as an individual soul: for Allah is He Who hears and sees (all things). 3617
29 Seest thou not that Allah merges Night into Day and He merges Day into Night; that He has subjected the sun and the moon (to His Law) each running its course for a term appointed: and that Allah is well acquainted with all that ye do? 3618
30 That is because Allah is the (only) Reality and because whatever else they invoke besides Him is Falsehood; and because Allah He is the Most High Most Great. 3619
O Mankind, fear that Day when no father shall avail his son nor a son his father Let not the Shaitan deceive you concerning this fact
31 Seest thou not that the ships sail through the Ocean by the grace of Allah? That He may show you of His Signs? Verily in this are Signs for all who constantly persevere and give thanks. 3620
32 When a wave covers them like the canopy (of clouds) they call to Allah offering Him sincere devotion. But when He has delivered them safely to land there are among them those that halt between (right and wrong). But none reject Our Signs except only a perfidious ungrateful (wretch)! 3621 3622
33 O mankind! do your duty to your Lord and fear (the coming of) a Day when no father can avail aught for his son nor a son avail aught for his father. Verily the promise of Allah is true: let not then this present life deceive you nor let the Chief Deceiver deceive you about Allah. 3623 3624
34 Verily the knowledge of the Hour is with Allah (alone). It is He Who sends down rain and He Who knows what is in the wombs. Nor does anyone know what it is that he will earn on the morrow: nor does anyone know in what land he is to die. Verily with Allah is full knowledge and He is acquainted (with all things). 3625 3626 3627
